Antineutrino interactions in BEBC are compared to look for differences between the differential cross sections per nucleon in neon and in deuterium. The identical geometries, beam spectra and muon identification criteria and acceptances allow comparison with very small systematic errors. The results are compared in detail with μ and e scattering data from EMC and SLAC. We find no rise in the ratio dσ/dx (ν Ne)/σ/dx (ν D2) at low x, independent of Q2 up to Q2 ∼ 14 GeV2.
